Some good news today

Ready for it?

It's really good.

Really, really good.

Ready to get excited?

Are you sure?

Okay, then... *drumroll*

Jeff accepted a job today! It's a good one, doing what he really wants to do (taxes, blech, but he loves 'em), and they're paying his previous salary, and after a 90 day probation period he gets 11 paid days off, and they pay benefits up to $300/mo., and this is the best part: they will pay for him to get his EA license, including any necessary preparation materials or classes and the fees for the test itself, and then as soon as he gets it, they will give him a $10,000/yr. raise and every other Friday off (not including tax season, of course.) And that is the STARTING salary for EAs, he can then expect additional raises as he stays there and such. It's the field he wants to go in to, they're starting him at a good salary (one we can live off!) with good benefits, it's close to home, they won't expect him to work Sundays, even during tax season... The only down side is that doing taxes, he will be gone a lot during tax season, but to make up for that we'll have more of his time the rest of the year and, you know, I could take some of that extra money and go on vacation or something so I don't go crazy. :D

We are very excited. Yay!!!
